On a different forum someone else was verbally attacked for saying the book never gives the explanation, with the attack claiming he (the original poster) is just too stupid to read a book and that it is clearly spelled out in the text. Right now we are trying to prove that guy wrong as he couldn't give a pagenumber.
Are we wrong and it is given very clearly in the text or is he wrong (well, he also claimed Carter attacked Andy in the end...)
LilMaibe wrote:No, that's not exactly what I meant, but...well, thanks. I was looking for the 'greater' reason. He claims that the books gives Margo's motive why she took the orc in, why he was spared and why she wants him to aid the others back into society (as in -why she wants them 'out of the dark'-).
Got that quote by chance?
EDIT: To elaborate:
In said thread the comparsion to the warcraft-story 'lord of the clans' was brought up (not by me, before anyone accuses me) as the human there had a reason to take the orc-child in (take over the world by teaching the child the heights of human civilization aka tactical warfare) while in UA no real reason is given. We assumed that -boredom- was Margo's reason before that bloke came up and accussed the whole thread of being to stupid to read and that her reason is clearly given in the text.
I'm pretty certain he's a troll, though. But better safe than sorry.

In any case, you have proven that bloke wrong, as the text giv no clear reason as to why the orc was spared and taken in.
